  2. Knitting Crochet Cedar Bowl and Tools

    My wife loves to knit, so for Christmas I made her a cedar bowl and some tools. Large bamboo needle, small African black wood needle (yes the eye is a little rough) and a small padauk, steel, and copper hook I modelled after the turning tools I make. I plan on adding to, and replacing all her...
  3. Yarn Swift for My Wife

    Outside of the usual toy making realm for me but when my wife asked for a yarn swift several months ago, there was no way I was going to say no. Basically a yarn swift makes winding a ball of yarn from a skein of yarn (the sort of sausage shape they are usually sold in) a lot easier than the...

    My gal knits, like many out there, and any time that I see some woodworking project that relates to knitting, I think "Oooh, brownie points!"

    I have mentioned before, Mrs YS's love of the craft of knitting. She's an active member of knitting's equivalent of Lumberjocks. It's called Ravelry.com (with over 1.4 million members!). Who said knitting is dead? Anyhow, I bought her some very expensive Knitpro 14" wooden knitting needles...
  7. Naughty Knitty

    My daughter is a knitter and spins her own yarn. I'm new to turning things on a lathe and she wanted to help suggest things for me to practice on. So she asked me to make her a Niddy Noddy. "A what", I asked. What a strange name for a device that gathers up yarn. I like my name for it better...
  8. Yarn Buddy

    I did this yarn buddy for my sister. My sister knits a lot and she is puts a skein of yarn on the rod and the unit turns as she knits. It is three pieces plus a brass axle. The upper disc keeps the yarn on the rod.

    This is a drop spindle i made for my wife to turn wool into yarn. The whorl is spalted beech and the upright is a walnut dowel rod. Once she started spinning yarn, she needed somewhere to store it until the next stage. So i made her a set of Knitty Noddys. These are red oak with with johnson's...

  12. Spinning Wheel

    This was my first attempt at a spinning wheel. A friend brought me a pile of wood that used to be a spinning wheel and asked if I could "fix" it. I've always wanted to build one so I took on the project as a learning experience. I had to fabricate the wheel, hub, and one back leg as the original...
  13. Knitting Box / Chest / Basket

    A project for my wife. She wanted something to store her crotchet projects and supplies in. I could not find any examples that suited her so she described what she wanted. It needed to be light and have handles so she could move it to wherever she was working, she wanted a split lid for easy...

  15. This was suppose to be a VASE before disaster struck. NOW A.

    Sometimes it takes a disaster to cause one to shift gears and try another road, sometimes for the best. This started out to be a vase, it was the first project after making the wooden articulated arm. Being anxious to try it out I hadn't set up a lazer to check wall thickness. You can guess what...
  16. Knitting Basket

    Hi everyone. Here's some pictures of a knitting basket I made for my wife. It's made from cherry and finished with linseed oil and wax. My main inspiration was to practice cutting dovetails. The dividers are set with machine cut sliding dovetails. It was a fun project and only took about 10...
  17. drop spindle

    My wife does alot of knitting. As a result, I end up learning about it and by default end up getting enlisted (pressed into service, more like) to make items to support her hobby. This spindle is used to wind the wool into yarn. Kinda like a small, hand powered spinning wheel. She wanted a...
  18. Knitting Needles

    My wife asked me a few days ago if it was possible for me to make her some knitting needles. Luckily I had a copy of the Spring '09 issue of Woodturning Design. In it is an article by David Reed Smith about turning knitting needles (if you don't have or read the issue, you can read the article...
  19. Knitting Swift

    My wife is a knitter and she has been wanting to buy one of these for a while now. Apparently you put the "scanes" of yarn around the swift and then you can roll it into a ball ready for knitting. This can then be done with only one person. I think you see this in the movies, one lady holding...
